WRITER’S PROMPT: Do You Have A ‘Third Man’ Protecting You?

Friday, August 28th, 2009

In his new book, ”The Third Man Factor,” John Geiger writes about the experiences of people in extreme experiences who thought they were going to die, but somehow kept their lives because they felt the presence of a ”third man” or the presence of another person or spirit who was there supporting them.
For example, the author writes about the mountaineer Herman Buhl who was climbing the ninth tallest peak in the world and was forced to spend the night out in the open without a sleeping bag or tent. This was an agonizing experience, he later wrote, but Buhl says he survived because he sensed that he shared the ordeal with a companion. ”I had an extraordinary feeling that I was not alone.”
The book’s author said that, ”Over the years the experience has occurred again and again, not only to 9/11 survivors, mountaineers, and divers, but also to polar explorers, prisoners of war, solo sailors, shipwreck survivors, aviators, and astronauts. All have escaped traumatic events only to tell strikingly similar stories of having experience the close presence of a companion and helper.”
And the author asks us to imagine how different our lives would be if we could always feels the presence of a ”third man” in our lives. ”There could be no loneliness with so constant a companion. There could be no stress in life that we would ever again have to confront alone.”
This is a comforting thought, but what do you think? Do you think there is a ”third man” or companion always around to call upon and help you when you are in need? Have there been dangerous situations where you felt you were protected by the invisible presence of another being or spirit?
Please share your thoughts with us.
